This is a place for people who role-play Yagami Light from Death Note (or Light Yagami, if you prefer a less alcoholic-sounding name) to meet and discuss the character-- or, more specifically, any and all insecurities they may have concerning playing him.
If you've ever doubted yourself, your portrayal of the character, or just wanted to discuss the bastard Light and explore the many, many, many complexities surrounding him, never fear! You've come to the right place.
MISSION STATEMENT * Bring together Light players into a close-knit community. * Facilitate in-depth discussion about playing Light. * Provide a comfortable environment for criticism and critique.
JOINING * You can join with your personal journal . . . * Or you can join with an RP journal of Light - provided the RP journal has an acknowledgment of who the player is in its profile. * Anonymous posting is not available nor allowed in this community. If you have an opinion, you need to have the guts to say it in "your" own voice.
CONDUCT * Be polite and courteous to one another. * No spamming, bashing, flaming. * No excessive swearing. * If someone posts something that you find offensive, either keep to the code of conduct or ignore it altogether. If you find it too offensive, contact the maintainers. * Maintainers reserve the right to ban people who cause excessive amounts of drama. However, maintainers must notify the person being banned of this in a discrete manner (IM or E-mail). If maintainers cannot find contact information, you will be banned without warning. * Maintainers reserve the right to delete and/or freeze comment lines due to spamming/bashing/flaming getting out of hand. * Maintainers reserve the right to change policies and rules of conduct as situations arise. However, maintainers must notify the community at large of these changes. * If problems arise, please contact the maintainers and we will get back to you within 72 hours.
CRITIQUING V. FLAMING * Flaming: Is not invited. * Critique: Is asked for - so unless a person asks for it, it's not allowed. * Flaming: Saying things such as "you suck," "you're OOC!," or "X wouldn't do that!" * Critique: Providing ways the player could improve and giving examples of how this could work. * Flaming: Insisting what the other person is playing is not "canon" or is somehow "wrong." * Critique: Giving examples of why this is or is not canon while taking into account previous development and in-game circumstances.
